Go! American

Students participating in the Go! American English program of the International Studies Foundation (FIS) were awarded their completion certificates in a ceremony held on Thursday, May 27. This micro-scholarship program, which the U.S. Embassy supports, is aimed at economically disadvantaged, academically successful 14-16 year old students who receive extracurricular classes during two school years to improve their English and learn about U.S. society, culture, and values. The ceremony was held in a hybrid format both at the Foundation’s headquarters and virtually and hosted by FIS president María Díaz de la Cebosa. Ana Duque-Higgins, a Public Diplomacy Officer from the U.S. Embassy, addressed remarks to the students, congratulating them on having successfully completed the program in these exceptional circumstances and encouraging them to continue improving their English to take advantage of academic and work opportunities. The students shared some of the things they learned thanks to the program.
